As a seller of all things vintage, I am always fascinated with the women that have gone before me, working with their hands. As I hold a handmade quilt or apron or tablecloth in my hands, I always think of what that little seamstress long ago was like and if she struggled with the same things I struggle with. I wonder if she had a hard time balancing it all being a wife, mother, friend, and follower of Jesus. It seems that for thousands of years, women all over the world have shared the same challenges. And for thousands of years, the same God has helped them through it all, giving them grace to be the wives and mothers He's called them to be!
I just listed four amazing vintage aprons on my etsy shop. I like to imagine the happy homemakers that wore these little retro beauties. I can just see them baking a cake, making a pot roast, and giving their kiddos the all time classic favorite of children throughout the decades - peanut butter and jelly sandwiches! Some things never go out of style...
